How many words is this picture worth? | In the Library and out in the world | Scoop.it

Via Jim Lerman
Mayra.Loves.Books's insight:

Wish I knew the context of this photo or where it came from. Is it digitally altered? The photo was shared, but no original source given. Yes, the picture is worth more than a thousand words, and as a teacher I can see the possibilities of using this in the classroom after a study or refresher about the life of MLK. As a librarian, not knowing the source bothers me tremendously. I hope someone who reads this will add the missing information.

Maya Angelou on Identity and the Meaning of Life ~ brain pickings

Maya Angelou on Identity and the Meaning of Life ~ brain pickings | In the Library and out in the world | Scoop.it

"Life loves the liver of it. You must live and life will be good to you."

by Maria Popova

 

"The light of the world has grown a little dimmer with the loss of the phenomenal Maya Angelou, but her legacy endures as a luminous beacon of strength, courage, and spiritual beauty. Angelou’s timeless wisdom shines with unparalleled light in a 1977 interview by journalist Judith Rich, found in Conversations with Maya Angelou (public library) — the same magnificent tome that gave us the beloved author’s conversation with Bill Moyers on freedom — in which Angelou explores issues of identity and the meaning of life."

Alone, none offer the turn-key approach to education that textbooks have traditionally turned to, but that’s part of the strength.

"It is the responsibility of all educators to model good digital citizenship for their students. Especially when it comes to copyright, plagiarism and intellectual property. The waters are murky. Not being familiar with online digital rights and responsibilities (hey, teachers did not grow up with the Internet being around), educators are wading through uncharted waters (hey, I did not know that I could not just google an image to use. If someone puts it up online it is free for the taking). That does not mean they can close their eyes and pretend life is the same or that the same rules apply to online versus offline use of copyrighted material with their students."
